Spline ik is onme option.
Also a bend modifier will give you some effect of wings flapping.
Mind you add a ploy serlect modifier.

It really depends on what type of animation you want to do with it and how detailed the character is.

DID u get it right.
Have you considered using poly select and a bend modifier for the wing flaps.
Then just put bones in for extra animation and use a flex modifier for the feathers.
Dont ask me how to use it, i still need to learn 35 % of max.
